It's time to start looking out these slides, prints and digital photographs.
There are four subject categories:
- Alpine / landscape
- People / humour / club activities
- Natural history
- Essence of the Tararuas
Each subject category is divided into a print section, and a slide / digital photographs section, making a total of 8 sections. You may make three entries in each category.
Images which have been entered into previous TTC photo competitions are not allowed.
All entries must be labeled with name, title of the image and the subject category.
Digital entries, clearly labeled, can be emailed (see below). Photo CDs, Slides and Prints, well labeled and packaged, can given to Peter Barber at a meeting. Closer to the time there will be a large cardboard box labeled "Photo Competition" on the stage at meetings.
Digital photographs & Slides
Since the club has a digital projector we are encouraging entries of digital photographs. Digital photographs should be in jpeg or tiff file format. Jpegs only can be emailed to ttc-photocompetition [snail] ttc [period] org [period] nz and must be clearly marked with your name and their subject category.
The minimum size for prints is A4 (210 × 297 mm, 8.27 inches x 11.7 inches), or equivalent surface area. Smaller prints will be disqualified.
The cost of getting prints made from negatives, digital files or slides is not high, eg a 8" by 12" print costs around $7 from Wellington Photographic Supplies, and you can hang it on your wall permanently!
Prints should all be mounted on cardboard so that they can be pinned up. If you want to enter a print, please feel free to email or phone, but hand the entry in closer to the closing date of the competition
The closing date for entries is Tuesday 2 September.
Look out these photos now. This is your chance to find out how good your images are, and some hints for taking better ones.
We have not yet decided on prizes or trophies, although the glory and prestige of a win is probably enough for most of us.
